Do you remember the Pontiac G8? You most likely don’t and that is a shame. Such an illustrious vehicle. It had spunk, it had pizzazz… and that was just the backseat, OH SNAP! Anyways, the G8 was America’s answer to the BMW M5, also another bad ass automobile, and it pretty much kept the Germans in their place. Where am I going with all of this? Well, the new cop car that GM is trying to bring over here is based on the Holden Commodore, an Australian car. The same Commodore that the Pontiac G8 was based on. So any car nerd, like myself, should have a tent in their pants (I totally have a circus tent) over the fact that we get another chance with that fine machine.

(Yeah I know it’s a little “macho” or whatever to post about “muscle cars” but there is a lot of nerdy stuff involved in cars too, ya know?!)
Also here is a bad ass video of a twin turbo Pontiac G8 for good measure. SICK!
